Abstract

We developed an interactive patient learning system for use on Blackberry devices to inform hypertension subjects about their chronic condition and enforce knowledge retention by questioning the user. The system uses the Blackberry's internet connection to retrieve hypertension information from a database and plays recorded audio files corresponding to hypertension information messages. The application was successfully developed, implemented, and tested on the BlackBerry 7100i smartphone with Nextel as a service provider. The application can be utilized as a universal mobile eLearning platform for interactive patient education.
